Meaning
This song is about mortality. The song is of a man who muses over the statue of a Conquistador. He comes to jeer at its pretentious haughtiness, but as he nears the statue he finds it in a state of decay. He comes to understand that we are mortal and the things that try to immortalize us are also mortal. No matter what we do, it decays and is forgotten. The sad lot of every being is to be forgotten, no matter what the achievement or belief of self importance--we are forgotten.
